      Depending on the budget you may want to spend, this would be one of the best choices if you decide to stay over 1 day in Sintra.

      One of the best places to see the city. Just love to stroll around this area and "loose" myself amoung the cobbled streets. You'll find some great esplanades to enjoy the views with a glass of wine:)

      Everyone will tell you to take the hike out to Belem to the super famous bakery there for egg tarts, but compared to this amazing bakery, the ones in Belem were just okay and the rest of the menu uninspiring.

      Okay, last one, I promise...

      Absolutely AMAZING dinner here! It's housed inside the museum of pharmacy in what looks like an old pharmacy. The atmosphere is fun and different, but the real star is the surprise dinner menu. For 28 ... read more
      euros, you get a 5 course meal: soup, starter, fish course, meat course and dessert. The meal literally is a surprise, you don't know until it shows up at your table. At the beginning, they ask if you have allergies or any particular preferences so they can tailor for your needs, but other than that, the chef does his thing! We had: -Green pea soup with cinnamon and pieces of blackened pork (served in a measuring beaker!) -Three starters: cod ball with spicy mayo and salad, octopus salad with apples on puff pastry and duck pate with apple on toast and honey -Fish course: the BEST squid ink risotto ever! HUGE chunks of perfectly cooked squid steak. We literally scrapped the bowl clean -Meat course: Blackened pork in Madeira wine sauce served with corn fritters and sweet Portuguese potatoes. -Dessert extravaganza: sliced pineapple, edible flowers with honey, pear crumble, white chocolate creme brulee and chocolate mousse with a Portuguese liqueur. The service was great, everyone was so friendly and even when we had never tried this particular Portuguese liqueur, they gave us free shots so we knew what it tasted like. Highly recommend!

      Imagine going to an hour long wine tasting...for free. Now imagine being asked to come back the next day...and the day after that. The Portuguese Ministry of Agriculture has set up this wine tasting ... read more
      room as a way to promote the Portuguese wine industry as well as get cheap market research. The wine tasting can be done in Portuguese or English, although while we were there it was also done in French since most tasters were French speakers. The hostess explains the wine regions you'll be tasting and then you get your paper and start choosing from around 40 different wines. You start with your first two (usually white or rose) and judge it by the bottle's appearance, what the wine looks like, smells like and finally tastes like. They also want to know what you would drink it with and what time of year. After your first two wines, you get to choose either reds or sweet dessert wines. We were able to sample some amazing Madeira wines that we could never have afforded to try otherwise. The tasting room is big and comfortable and the hostess is very knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to choosing a wine you'll like. They also want you to come back...again and again! Certain wines are available for purchase, often at discount prices. I got an absolutely amazing fortified wine called Lajido Pico for a bargain price. A really great way to try out some Portuguese wine and expand your wine knowledge without spending anything!

      Sintra is a great little spot that's easy to get to from Lisbon. It's filled with palaces and has a cute, quaint town where you can grab lunch or dinner.

      I highly recommend visiting Sintra. Not only is it beautiful, but the town is charmingly cute and there's plenty to see/do. It makes a nice change from the more packed streets of Lisbon.

      A place to go for fado! Great authentic music, very good food, not a touristy place… It’s pretty expensive but well worth it. If you can, linger after the main performance is over… have another glass ... read more
      of wine… This place is often visited by fairly known fado artists who often come to eat here but then end up performing on the spot.
